Why Feelin' Blue Deodar Cedars?
If you’re looking for a striking, low-growing cedar that can be used in a variety of landscapes, the Feelin’ Blue Deodar Cedar is a perfect choice.
The lowest-growing of any dwarf cedar tree, the Feelin’ Blue works well as groundcover in sloping plots or hanging down from retaining walls, and it can even thrive in containers or rock gardens. It can also be staked to grow its gracefully-arcing branches into a small tree.
Native to the Himalayan mountains, the name “deodar” means “timber of the gods” in Sanskrit. This aromatic cedar was historically used to create containers for precious items because of its natural pest-resistance.
You'll love the Cedrus Deodara Feelin’ Blue for its namesake blue-green needles, which adds a surprising color to green landscapes. Plus, this tree is an evergreen, for pops of consistent blue color even in winter gardens.

Planting & Care
The Feelin’ Blue Deodar Cedar tree grows at a moderate rate of about six to eight inches per year. It grows with minimal maintenance, though pruning may be required depending on the shape you choose. The Feelin’ Blue thrives in full sun, and well-drained, medium-moisture soil. It tolerates humid summers but not extremely cold winters, especially if it doesn’t have protection from the elements.
Seasonal Information: Plant your Feelin’ Blue Deodar Cedar in the spring after your ground has thawed, or in the fall well before your first frost. You can plant in summer, but make sure your tree gets adequate water if you do. The best time to plant is on a cooler, cloudy day. Since they do best in growing zones 6-9, these trees prefer climates with warmer winters and plenty of sunlight.
Location: Choose a location where the Feelin’ Blue Deodar Cedar's unique, spreading form will have plenty of space to grow. Make sure it can get full sunlight, without shade from other surrounding trees or structures. The Feelin’ Blue Deodar Cedar can thrive in various soils including sandy, loamy, clay, or slightly acidic, but be sure your soil drains well as these trees do not like wet roots.
1) Dig a hole for your tree 2-3 times the width of the root ball and of equal depth. Amending your soil with peat, compost or manure will help it to drain better.
2) Remove your Feelin’ Blue Deodar Cedar from its growing pot and place tree in the hole, ensuring the top of the root ball is even with the ground.
3) Adjust your tree’s position to ensure that it is sitting straight, and begin to backfill the hole, tamping down lightly as you go.
4) Once the hole has been completely covered, water your tree deeply to settle the soil and help fill any air pockets.
5) Mulch around the base of your tree to help conserve moisture and protect the roots.
The Feelin’ Blue Deodar Cedar can also thrive in a container. If planting in a container, choose one that gives the tree enough room to grow, and place it in full sun. You may need to water potted Feelin’ Blue Deodar Cedars more frequently - water when the soil is dry.
Watering: These trees are drought resistant and once established will be fine with occasional rainfall. If you are experiencing times of extreme heat and drought, be sure to provide some extra water. They do not like standing water, so avoid over watering.
Pests and Diseases: The Feelin’ Blue Deodar Cedar produces an aromatic oil that will naturally deter insects, so it is relatively pest and disease free. Giant conifer aphids can occasionally be an issue, but are usually not severe enough to cause death to the tree.
Pruning: These trees are low maintenance and require little to no pruning. Removing any dead or broken branches will be sufficient.
